We have recently discovered that there are bogus companies out there again, targeting timeshare owners in their vulnerable time of need.
These companies tend to cold call and use quick pop-up websites in an attempt to create credibility. The most recent bogus company, Opt Out Resolutions, has in fact copied from our own website and falsely stated that they work with our legal team.
You can view their website at; https://optoutresolutions.com/
Our legal team have been instructed to investigate and inform the relevant authorities to have them shut down and prosecuted for fraud.
Warning signs of a bogus company
- The time period of the website or company – the newer they are the more likely that they are a scam.
- They will not display their company name or registration number at the bottom of their webpage. The registration number is crucial to spotting if a company is genuine or not as you can use it to search for them in Companies House to find out their details.
- There may be a lack of other details displayed such as an office address.
- Verify if the suspected company is registers with the ICO – Information Commissioners Office.
